Very Good. Item #5499
Baltimore: F. Lucas, Jr. and Jos. Cushing, 1814. 12mo (13x8cm); 254 pp.
Contemporary calf binding with black title label on spine. Notes in ink and pencil on endpapers and title page indicate this book belonged to a military student at West Point in 1818. Binding is sound. Some pages have what appears to be ink on the bottom edge. Page 15 is torn and missing a portion. Pages 36 and 37 have notes in the margins. Otherwise, pages are foxed but clean and unmarked. Scarce.
This copy is from the library of journalist William Safire.
